I had wrote a previous post without many responses and was told by someone to give my preferences along with more direct info and maybe I could get more help.

I do what to move to a place similar to Jersey City with the same diversity and close to the city.

I plan to move the summer of 2012 because I would like a change of scenery, that has new and better surroundings for my son and I. Someplace that is diverse in race & religion, a liberal city with lots of culture.

I plan to rent an apartment or townhouse between $1100 and $1400. This would be in a neighborhood with people between the ages of early 20s to mid 30s. With basic services such as supermarket, drugstores and laundry close by and good schools too. My son is 2 years old so I would like a daycare area that is not too costly but teaches well.

Also, my career is important. I am a Fashion Management and Marketing graduate. I would love to have a position that I can grow from and not be stuck. Maybe as a costume designer or stylist, or even Marketing and Promotions. Even event planning.

Does anyone have any info of the towns or cities nearby that would fit me best?

Probably Oak Park, assuming you can find an actual job in the field you mention. Of course if the job ends up being in Naperville or Schaumburg it would not be an easy commute.

I am very familiar with JC. You will likely find the same feel in the Lakeview neighborhood in the city.

Get the job first.
